Vin Diesel Reveals “Fast and Furious” Future

It’s one of the most successful film franchises in recent memory, and it seems there’s still two “Fast and Furious” films on the way.

Leading man Vin Diesel revealed that he’ll be starring in both a sixth and seventh flick, thanks to the overwhelming demand.

Diesel shared, "With the success of this last one, and the inclusion of so many characters, and the broadening of scope, when we were sitting down to figure out what would fit into the real estate of number six, we didn't have enough space.”

“We have to pay off this story. We have to service all of these character relationships, and when we started mapping all that out it just went beyond 110 pages. The studio said, 'You can't fit all that story in one damn movie!'"

And Vin says he saw it coming a ways off. "I've always had kind of an allergic reaction to taking a reactionary approach to a sequel. My gut feeling about sequels is that they should be premeditated. You should try to write a trilogy first or at least sketch out a trilogy if you have any faith in your film. You should think about where the film is going over a series of films... This is a trilogy... When I was thinking of this 'Fast & Furious,' I thought of it as three stories. The one that you saw, this one and the final one."
